EverTrue is excited to announce that we were chosen as one of 17 winners from a pool of over 700 applicants in the MassChallenge startup accelerator contest. We were honored by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and Bert Jacobs, CEO of Life is Good.
On October 24th, thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, media, technology and start up supporters, gathered at the Boston Convention Center for the awards ceremony. The event, along with great food and company, afforded the 26 finalist teams to give a one-minute pitch to the thousands attending. This pitch was the last of many that both Brent and Eric gave throughout the course of MassChallenge. In addition to introducing MassChallenge participating teams to some of the best and brightest mentors from around Boston and the start up community at large, the start-up accelerator program lead the teams through rounds of pitches to CEOs and investors—pushing the companies to perfect their cause, as well as widdle down the teams that eventually would be awarded prize money.
Our team was awarded $50,000 to further invest in the growth of EverTrue in the form of a four-foot long check! We had a great time participating in MassChallenge, are excited to celebrate our achievements and look forward to the next accomplishments together.
